Looking to learn? Wanting to get back into the air?

The summer of 2009 marked the first official season of the Motley Crew Vault Club. Its goal is to provide a safe place for vaulters to practice while promoting sportsmanship within the pole vault community. Thus, a typical practice can include vaulters of all ages and ability levels from several counties and states. An emphasis is placed on jumping safely and having fun. Don't know the basics, but you've always wanted to learn? We'll teach you!

Becoming a Motley Crew Kangaroo is easy. Fill out the registration form/waiver and pay the $50 registration fee. Also, vaulters under 18 wishing to compete in USATF sanctioned meets should bring a copy of their birth certificate to be kept on file by the club.
